BENEFITING: San Francisco Friends School
EVENT DATE: May 15, 2015
The IRC (International Rescue Committee) is an organization that helps refugees. Our school, the San Francisco Friends School, is raising money through a 3rd grade jog-a-thon for the IRC. I and my classmates will be jogging to raise funds for the IRC to help Syrian refugees. I hope you will contribute.
One reason why I think you should donate is because Refugees need food and water just like all of us. Here is some facts and examples like:
1. If they don't have food and water, they could die.
2. Syrians go to refugee camps and need food and water right away.
3. Some kids, younger than 6, had to travel for 10 days to refugee camps.
Another reason is that the IRC saves lives.
Another bunch of facts and examples are:
1. Sometimes we see people suffering right in front of us and we can instantly help them unlike their are children in the world suffering for a very bad cause and we cannot help them right away.
2. Also there are 50 million displaced people in the world.
The last reason is:The IRC also provides clothes, socks, toys and books for refugees.
Now I will give you the last bunch of facts and example like:
1. We saw pictures of kids who had to walk 10 days just to get to a refugee camp.When they receive toys and books, they feel like they're home and are living a normal life.
2. They feel like they're not alone, that people are supporting them.
So, thats why I hope you'll contribute to the IRC!
